Are you looking for effective ways to learn Czech? New ways? Do you want to learn words that are useful, and that you will often hear and use? Start learning those that are most frequent!
This book draws on A Frequency Dictionary of Czech (Core Vocabulary for Learners) published by Routledge in 2011. In the introduction, the authors say that just 1000 MOST FREQUENT WORDS might account for 85 PER CENT OF SPEECH!
The problem is that when you want to learn a word in Czech, especially a verb or a noun, each has many forms, so I’ve decided to write a book that would show these various forms to learners. In addition, you can find some useful phrases where these words are shown “in action”. My plan is to cover all those 1000 most frequent Czech words in the upcoming years, and this is the first publication in that series.
WHO IS THE BOOK FOR?
I believe this book is suitable for people who have already learnt at least some basics of the Czech language, not for complete beginners. However, I am sure it can be useful for those who have already got to a higher level – they can use it as a reference book, or explore more through the links collected inside.
This is not a textbook, and it cannot teach you Czech grammar. It is a handbook, made to show you all the forms of the most frequent Czech verbs and nouns. There are 53 words in this book because there are 53 weeks in a year. Well, there are 52, but one or two days are then left over, so there are 53 words to cover them, too.
I hope you'll find this book useful, and look forward to hearing from you!
